The relation of the project with the project site and the surrounding environment:
- The old building texture in vicinity of the project land is so unequal that anyway affects the structure which is built on the land and the optimization of this unequal building for compatibility with the project needs a large amount of time and money
- Placement of the structure on the underground (earth) makes the resting complex more equal and coordinated.
 

Shrine and museum of Shams

The relation of the project with the project site and the surrounding environment:
- The old building texture in vicinity of the project land is so unequal that anyway affects the structure which is built on the land and the optimization of this unequal building for compatibility with the project needs a large amount of time and money.
- Placement of the structure on the underground (earth) makes the resting complex more equal and coordinated.
- While giving more respect to the historical site, the minaret is yet considerable once separating the ground surface from the construction and a vast reflective surface (water) cause an increase in visual quality of the historical site.
- More control on the light and shadow in the project and using the needed light in optimum points would be possible through designing the structure in the underground. Entering into the complex through the north side and near the main axis of access to the site is provided through a sloped route (ramp). While facilitating the access for all people (including the disabled), the slope route and also the internal slope routes of the complex provide the possibility of going around the space and having various aspects of the complex.
